Francesca Paola di Mare was born in Neaples, Italy, in 1973. In 1996 she obtained a Degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Neaples „Federico II“ with honours. During the last year of her undergradate studies, she started working on turbulent combustion and in 2003 she obtained the degree of Doctor of Philosophy and the Diploma of Membership of Imperial College at Imperial College London, in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.From 1997 to 2004 she has worked with Prof. Bill Jones at Imperial College on turbulent combustion modelling, where she gave a substantial contribution to the development of the in-house CFD code BOFFIN . In 2004 she started working as Development Engineer at CD-Adapco, where she was responsible for the assessment, implementation and validation of advanced physical models for turbulent reacting flows in the STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+ CFD solvers and, also, for the design and enforcement of programming standards and testing procedures and for providing support and technical/scientific advice for consultancy and strategic pre-sales projects. In 2009 she moved to the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Köln, where she is now responsible for the development of the Reacting Flows module in the turbomachinery CFD code TRACE.Her research interests cover Tubulent Combustion Modelling, High -Temperature Gasdynamics, Supersonic Combustion.She serves as Reviewer for the SAE conference series, for the Combustion Institute and for various scientific Journals. In 2009 she has served on the International Advisory Committee for the FVV-Arbeitskreises ”Numerischer Simulation CAI” (Germany) and for the SFB-686 (Germany).In 2005 she won, with S. Navarro-Martinez and A. Kronenburg, the Sugden Prize, awarded by the British Section of the Combustion Institute for the most significant contribution to combustion research of the year.She is a member of the German Section of the Combustion Institute and Senior Member of the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).
